Visit us Monday-Friday, 7am to 4:30pm. We have a small office with a small learning display; however, we enjoy visiting with people that stop by.
Location and Contact Information
The prairies of northwest North Dakota are home to an abundance of wildlife. The Crosby Wetland Management District lies within the Prairie Pothole Region, otherwise known as the “Duck Factory of North America". A vast expanse of grassland dotted with numerous small wetlands creates a highly productive area for waterfowl production. Despite the widespread land conversion, approximately 50 percent of North America’s breeding waterfowl population is still produced within the Prairie Pothole Region. Areas throughout the Wetland Management District are also deemed critical habitat for the threatened piping plover. The Wetland Management District was established primarily to protect this waterfowl breeding and nesting habitat.
What We Do
Wildlife conservation is at the heart of the National Wildlife Refuge System. It drives everything on U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service lands and waters managed within the Refuge System, from the purposes for which an area is established to the recreational activities offered to the resource management tools used. Using conservation best practices, the Refuge System manages Service lands and waters to help ensure the survival of native wildlife species.
